Straw fire still burning near Norwich

A fire in Horsford is being left to burn itself out.

Drayton Lane between Holt Road and Reepham Road has been closed since 500 tonnes of straw caught fire in a nearby field just before 2am, and police said it would remain closed until tomorrow morning.

Fire crews from Norwich, Sprowston and Earlham and the water carrier from Hethersett were sent to tackle the blaze and diversions are in place.

A spokesman said it was too early to say what caused the blaze.
